Day 6 - November 12th

3/29/2013 6:03:41 PM
In the morning we will go to the fascinating ruins of Megiddo called “Armageddon” in the book of Revelation. High up on the ruins of this intriguing site, there will be teaching about the role of Armageddon in the end-times. We will have the opportunity to drive to Nazareth to visit the well of Mary and hear about Nazareth – the city of the Messiah. Next, we will visit the Church of the Annunciation, and stop at Qumran. This archaeological site is located in the West Bank about 1 mile northwestern of the Dead Sea. It is best known as the location where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in 1947 deep inside a cave. The scrolls are the oldest scriptures of the Bible ever found. The Dead Sea is also known to be the lowest point on earth at 1300 feet below sea level. The quantity of water that evaporates from it is greater than that which flows into it. That being said, this body of water has the highest concentration of salt in the world which provides you the opportunity to float like a cork! Enjoy the evening on the Dead Sea and perhaps enjoy a mud bath while you are at it.
